My treatment philosophy is to be the best listener I can be in order to hear all of the medical and emotional needs of my patients. I also strive to use humor to make the patient experience more relaxed and enjoyable.
My personal interests include long distance running, tennis, golf, softball, and basketball. I also enjoy reading non fiction, traveling, and going to sporting events.

Dr Merrel is very professional and caring
It was almost 91/2 years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was then that I met Dr. Merrell. He was terrific from our 1st meeting. I felt like I won the doctor lottery. Great guy, great doctor, great team of people with him. I hope I never have the occasion to, but I would recommend him to anyone.
very concerned: very professional!!!
I did so in the past month.
I always recommend Dr.Merrell and the NSUHS to friends and family. Dr. Merrell is a very caring, professional, intelligent, and kind doctor.
Can't say enough to adequately describe how thankful I am for the care provided me. Dr. Merrell and Ina are always available to respond to my questions. Dr. Merrell has referred me to terrific specialists and really helped me overcome some challenges.
it was a good appointment
Dr. Merrill is very responsive and am glad he is my doctor. I know I am in good hands. His assistants or nurse practitioners are wonderful as well
I always look forward to talking with Dr. Merrell and his staff. They are friendly, concise, and they make sure they answer my questions.
